Father's day handprint frame

This morning, I got little miss J to make her Father's Day present! We started with some paint on her teeny little hands, which were then transferred to a 5' x 7' artist canvas. 
Aren't they the cutest??

As the paint dried, I got her to try painting some flowers with cut straws which I found over at Putti Prapancha.

She really enjoyed that and then decided she wanted a run of the brush instead!

Once the canvas was dry, she added on some smiley faces and we slipped it into a frame.

Packed up and decorated with a little flower made of magazine paper and a little tag which I cut and crimped using my very talented friend's paper crimper, you can find her here. She makes some awesome cards! The tag reads "Specially handmade for you by Sanaa Jacob".

He's going to love this - he's also going to get it today instead of tomorrow as little miss J will say as soon as he walks in the door " Daddy I made you a present!!! ". We haven't quite learnt the idea of a surprise yet!!!!

Total cost for this project:
Artist canvas - £1.00
Ready mix paint - £1.00
Frame - £0.99
Stickers - on hand

Total cost: £2.99
Total value: Priceless!

    Here in Portugal Father's Day is in March 19th... Day of Saint Joseph (Father of Jesus Christ).
